Military Record

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJ

Has anyone got any experience with sending British Military records in to the NVC i know it is a long shot but thought it might be worth a try.

I have my certificate of Service is this all they require? or because my discharge date is not till OCT should i send them a more detailed description of my timeline as i will no longer be required at my post after August.

Also another point is that of Reserve Liability anyone got any clue if you have to apply to have it waived and or who to talk to. i am not sure if they need all that information now or when it comes to interview or if i will get a checklist. :-/

i know it is a pretty specific question so any help would be appreciated

many thanks

Depending on your trade you probably won't have anything to worry about concerning your reserve liability.

Unless you're in a trade which is extremely undermanned or specialised (ATO, SF, pilot etc) then there's little chance of compulsory mobilisation.

Probably the only time you'll hear from them will be the yearly form Kentigern House sends out to update your address and the like. You'll have to let them know where you'll be living.

And you'll only be on the Regular Reserve lists for a few years until transferred to the Long Term Reserve where you can only be called up if the UK itself is under threat.

Not much to worry about, plenty of veterans emigrate.

Unless things have changed a lot since I got out.
